Stranglers – Skin Deep lyrics

Many people tell you that they're your friend
You believe them
You need them
For what's round the river bend
Make sure that you're receiving the signals they send
'Cause brother you've only got two hands to lend
Maybe there's someone who makes you weep
And some nights loom up ahead
When you're asleep
Some days there's things on your mind you should keep
Sometimes it's tougher to look than to leap
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
One day the track that you're climbing gets steep
Your emotions are frayed
And your nerves are starting to creep
Just remember the days
As long as the time that you keep
Brother you better watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Brother watch out watch out for the Skin Deep
Better watch out for the Skin Deep

    To me this is a song that is a warning. It acknowledges that everyone has friends, but it demonstrates that you should choose your friends with caution. No-one knows what life will bring and in light of that, the song serves as wise advice to suggest that you should keep good company for the more testing times in life. More obviously, it teaches of how you should be observant of the actions of the socalled 'skin deep, ' whom are implied to be close friends that you may not be able to confide in as well as you think you can.
    It inspires me to want to write lyrics, timeless track full of wisdom.
